Vodafone Sure Signal

Are there any benefits from having SureSignal against WiFi Calling?

1: Seeker

Can seldom get 4G indoors here, and weak signal generally, but have been using WiFi Calling.  Any benefits from SureSignal?  Can't really see any obvious ones and it only seems to cover 3G.

Thanks!

Sure Signal is a static device that stays in the home or in the office to provide a 3G connection in a particular place.

It also costs a person a one off £69 for the device.

Calling Over Wifi is more mobile.

"Wi-Fi Calling lets you make calls anywhere you have Wi-Fi, even when there’s no mobile signal." , but a person has to have the right tariff and eligible handset for it to work.

So contrary to what Vodafone told me, it wouldn't give me 4G.

Thanks - might as well forget it, given that I have WiFi here.

No - a SureSignal is a 3G device only - but that doesn't matter you'll only be using it for calls and texts. Data will still be using your own broadband WiFi.

 

The advantage of a Sure Signal is that it supports multiple phones including those that aren't eligible for WiFi calling. Also WiFi calling doesn't support SMS messages whereas the Sure Signal does.
